About special exhibition
Make Way for Ducklings: The Art of Robert McCloskey
Now on view through September 9, 2018

Make Way for Ducklings: The Art of Robert McCloskey celebrates the writer and illustrator whose classic children’s books have captivated children of all ages for generations. The recipient of two Caldecott Medals and three Caldecott Honors, McCloskey was a major force in twentieth century children’s literature.

The exhibition consists of over 100 original artworks, ephemera, and rare preliminary book materials. While emphasis centers on his classic, Make Way for Ducklings (1941) the exhibition considers McCloskey’s entire works including Centerburg Tales (1951), which recall his youth in Hamilton, Ohio. In addition, it includes his family-based stories in his adopted home state of Maine such as Blueberries for Sal (1948) and Time of Wonder (1957). A selection of independent work—watercolors and paintings that connect McCloskey to such prominent twentieth century American painters as Thomas Hart Benton and Edward Hopper—are also showcased. Free admission. More info: http://bit.ly/MakeWayforDucklings
